The AERO 90 goes big, offering ultra-deep rim aerodynamics. Time trialists and triathletes love this wheel because the DET™ rim profile reduces drag to a minimum, effectively giving them an advantage over their competitors. The 90 AERO allows racers to go faster while expending less watts, and like the similarly shaped RZR® 92, it remains stable in gusty conditions, allowing the rider to concentrate on putting down power and going for the win.
Available in Clincher only.
CR6 (Carbon Rim 6) is the precise method of assigning different carbon fiber and lay-ups to6 rim regions.
Reynolds specifies type of fiber, epoxy and resin adjusting the specs to achieve the perfect tensile strength, stiffness and elongation for each rim model.
Each batch is certified according to Reynolds’ specifications.
CTg stands for Cryogenic Glass Transition, a patented braking system developed by Reynolds.
The two components are Reynolds' proprietary Cryo-Blue Power polymer brake pads and hybrid carbon-fiber laminate (CTg brake track). With CTg, braking temperatures are 100*F (38*C) cooler than with other technologies.
BWI stands for Brake Wear Indicator. It is a 10mm wide red line that Reynolds embeds into the brake track.
The indicator, centered over the valve hole on both sides of the rim, becomes visible when excessive wear has occurred to indicate that the wheel needs replacing.
DET™ smoothes turbulent, excited, energized airflow and re-attaches it to the aerodynamic surface, effectively reducing aerodynamic drag. DET™ is Reynolds’ superior aerodynamic technology used on RZR 92 and all AERO wheels.

Reynolds Cycling was the first company to put a carbon clincher into large-scale production. That gave them an advantage in terms of market penetration but it also meant that early adopters satisfied with their wheels didn’t necessarily progress to their newer technology. I’m beginning with this shot of the inside of the rim to show just how clean their molding is. I’ve seen a lot of carbon wheels and that level of precision at the inner wall and bead hook isn’t common. http://redkiteprayer.com/index.php?s=reynoldsRead Full Article
